Hey there, bow friends!
I wanted to share my thoughts on the lip scrub I mentioned in my January Favorites since I only gave you a snippet of my love for it.
So let’s get down to the (very literal) nitty gritty. This little Lush Lip Scrub in Popcorn was $9.95 as are the other Lush lip scrubs. It comes in a cute, simple, and substantial glass jar with your typical Lush labels. I think the down fall of this packaging is that I loathe sticking my finger into the product to scoop it out. Nine times out of ten when I try to get some product out I end up spilling some. I think I’ll invest in a little beauty spoon or spatula for this because I can’t stand wasting it.
There are .8 ounces of product in that wee little pot. When I was in Lush, the ever so helpful employee was telling me how each little pot should last just about a year. Talk about longevity.
When it comes to Lush, there’s always the great thought that the products are usually vegan and all natural. This product has salt, extra virgin coconut oil, and even fizzy candy in it! So you know..that makes it tempting to lick it off mid scrub. The popcorn scent is absolutely scrumptious. I’m not a sweets girl, but I love a good savory snack. This scrub drives me nuts. The taste is sweet..until you get too much of it and it tastes bitter. Be warned.
The texture of the scrub is like a a gritty, finely-milled, salt scrub. It’s not too rough and smooths, buffs, and exfoliates your lips. Before I put on a statement lip (or my lips are just being really inspired by the Sahara that day) I’ll dab some of this scrub on and start buffing it in with clean fingers. If I’m gonna go straight into the lipstick, I’ll first apply my Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment and then glide on the lip color. If I’m doing this before bed, I’ll rub on on some Blistex Lip Medex Lip Protectant (also in an annoying little pot. Sigh.).
I’ve tried the bubble gum flavor of the Lush Lip scrub and well..I am not the biggest fan of bubble gum, but, naturally, the same results were produced with this scrub. I used to make my own lip scrub (one spoon full brown sugar and a teaspoon olive oil) and still won’t mind doing so when this one runs out, but there’s just something about the popcorn scent I can’t resist…
So *cough cough* in conclusion, I’d give this scrub a big thumbs up. If you’re in the market for one and can’t be bothered to make your own, I say go for it.
I hope you all are having a great week (it’s only Tuesday?!) and I can’t wait to get this next post up for you all. I’m excited. We shall talk very very very soon!
